Israelis Get Three More Warburg Fellowships to Study Medical Research in the U.S.

Three more fellowships in medical research memorializing the late Dr. Judah L. Magnes, president of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, were announced last night by the New York Community Trust. The fellowships are in the amount of $3,000 each and are made from a fund of $100,000 set up by Mrs. Frieda Schiff Warburg, widow of Felix M. Warburg.

Four awards were made last year and about 23 more grants will be made at the rate of three each year. The recipients are students and doctors in Israel who are expected to return to teaching or practice there at the end of their studies in the United States. The new winners are Dr. David Bernbaum, specialists in gastroenterology and infectious diseases, Dr. K. Guggenheim, in charge of the nutrition department, Hebrew University-Hadassah Medical School, and Dr. M. Wolman, practitioner in pathological anatomy relating to degenerative diseases.
